Product Description
After teaching the three types of irony during our mythological unit (when we were talking about the irony in King Midas and the Golden Touch), I came up with this handout for easy assessment on how well students understand the three different types.

This product comes with directions, examples of each type of irony, the 23 sentences to be labeled, and an answer key. The 23 sentences or scenarios will challenge students as they read and determine if it is situational irony, verbal irony, dramatic irony, or none. This assessment is great for a quick look at how well your students understand irony.

Just a suggestion: using the TedEd videos on youtube about irony (there's one video for each type of irony) really helped my kids understand the difference between the three types. The videos are well done and keep the students' attention.
